    When you commented on my thread you purposefully stated you didn't finishing watching the video in the OP, I am just reciprocating the courtesy by not reading your OP.

    There are a lot of "whites" that have no "privilege" because they are not in the social and wealth clique you rave against. Just like in India, where there are a lot of Indians not in the social and wealth cliques that give someone who is a member privilege.
    All whites have privilege, some just have additional social class privileges thrown on-top of that.

    If you were to compare a poor white to a poor black, the poor white would have privileges not afforded to the black.

    Here's another example of white privilege, that all whites benefit from:

    Actually your right, they only sold suburban properies to people who wore leather jackets and where in the T-birds.....

    Oh wait that's wrong; no blacks that was explicitly recorded as a fact.

    Fact.

No one forced the US to do that.
    A party, the democrats, fundamentally based on finding ways to segregate.

    Also the policy occurred in the 30s, 40s, 50s and 60's so I'm sure the Republican had something to do with it.

    You presented something from 80-90 years ago to prove 'white privilage' I provided current interviews that shows today's reality.

    Try again.

    So if I put together a video of randoms saying the moon landings didn't happen you would believe it?

    Was there White privilege in the 1930s when the housing program was brought in - no doubt there was. And there was White privilege straight into the 1960s, differing in degree from one part of the country to the next, of course. Since the Civil Rights Act and associated legislation, however, it has been on the decline. An argument can also be made that there has been "fossilized" privilege in the form of inherited wealth, with Whites generally inheriting greater wealth than Black Americans. But I think it can be generally asserted that this has also declined over time, thanks in part to the fact that real estate values have not held constant in various parts of the country and have even declined precipitously in some places when compared against the average. The overall historical trend is toward equalisation - for negative reasons in the former industrial states, as numerous black and white workers have both lost almost everything thanks in a large degree to trade policies, and for positive reasons in other parts of the country as a result of equal opportunity legislation, education grants, and other affirmative action policies. So, if there is White privilege today it is something that is in pronounced decline, and for many White Americans, does not exist at all.

    Maybe it exists in Germany, I can't say for sure because I haven't been there in a while.
